Where were you on Saturday March 30th? If the answer
isn't Astatula FL, then you missed out on one of the biggest BMX events
of the year called Swampfest! If you're passionate about BMX, this is
the place to be!
Swampfest has gotten bigger and better each year
and this year the event drew over 3,000 riders, fans, and spectators
from all over the world. BMX legends, industry icons, big name pros, and
Joe Schmoes, from dirt to park, from flatland to street, old school,
mid school, and new school. BMX came together for an unforgettable
weekend of fun, excitement, partying, and most importantly brotherhood!
it took a massive crew of friends, family, and sponsors to build all of
the obstacles, jumps, and ramps... the man with the vision behind
Swampfest is none other than Trey Jones.
Trey stopped by the
Master Blaster Planet studios to talk about everything that went down
before, during, and after the mayhem, including when he started
designing and building the obstacles for the event, securing an area big
enough to handle a large amount of people, building the jumps as well
as the idea behind the Chasm jump, the design of the park course, the
massive 80 ft rail across the swamp, the double loop, the sideways loop
called the Vortex, the limited edition Vans shoes, the wrap party, the
fires that raged, the day after carnage, and finally, will there be
another Swampfest next year?
So get comfortable, crank up your
speakers, and check out this special edition of Space Brothers. It's the
Swampfest Recap with Trey Jones!
